has fluctuated during president obama's administration. you can see that sharp rise in the beginning when we were still in a recession. and then a gradual slow lowering over the last couple of years. the unemployment news comes as we get word that americans borrowed $18 billion more in august than the month before. much of that borrowing coming in the form of credit cards and student loans. wall street reaction somewhat mixed today. the dow gaining 35 and closing at its highest level in nearly five years on this friday. the nasdaq dropped 13. the s&p 500 was flat. right now, republic candidate for president, governor mitt romney is speaking at an event in st. petersburg, florida. we understand is he going to be touching on the economy. let's watch for just a moment. >> the participation of our adults in the workforce were the same as at the time that he got elected. our unemployment rate would be about 11%. people in this country are having a hard time finding a job. people in this country are having a hard time making ends meet even if they do have a job. so it's time to have someon
by the obama administration that are having a chilling effect on energy production in the united states. those three things alone would send signals to the marketplace. we're serious about our energy policy. even though congress doesn't act, the administration, the president could take those steps and it would send a clear signal, put a lot more people to work. >> so what should the policy look like? what, in your view, would be the most important, you know, event that the administration can do to help the country's energy situation? >> i think the first thing is it needs to be a policy driven by job creation. in the oil and the gas business, since this recession started in 2007, 2008, we've created close to 400,000 jobs when the economy has lost 6 million. so we need to focus on job creation potential. the second thing we shouldn't overlook is the amount of revenue that the industry generates as they create these jobs. we contribute over $86 million a day to the federal government. that's a lot of revenue that could help with deficit, deficit reduction and our debt structure. the third piece
. plus, why is the obama administration standing in the way of our brave military men and women from
're going it try to find those people who we can help with weapons, which is what the obama administration is doing. on the top line, he talks this big, strong, big stick game but he doesn't really seem to have a clue about how you would even do that in real life. >> he also -- >> steve i have to get to something dishonest here. i think everybody agreed with your hawk, middle of the road, or a dove, you will agree this is dishonesty here. in the two-state solution it's different what he says in public and behind closed doors to backers. here was romney today sounding reasonable, in fact, consistent with u.s. policy. let's take a look. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. on this vital issue, the president has failed and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. >> ear here he is in may at tha
critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
the same words that the obama administration has been weak and libya and syria have been mishandled. here's congressman ryan fakes off on one of the deans of foreign policy for this administration. >> i think a tremendous disadvantage for congressman ryan, as it will be for governor romney when he faces off against the president on foreign affairs. i think joe biden will make sure they don't stray from the truth. in yesterday's speech somewhat unbelievably to me after all the contention about misstatements, governor romney made two significant misstatements again shows a disregard for the facts. one he said, tamron, there was no discussion of terrorism in the 2008 debates. we saw last night on msnbc they played the tape. >> there's tape to prove he wasn't accurate. >> 40 mentions of terrorism in that debate, and he said president obama hasn't signed a single free-trade agreement, when, in fact, he signed three. joe biden won't let him get away with it. going back to domestic policy for a section, congressman ryan said we don't have enough time to make the math add up. i think what the vic
to be good news for the obama administration. >> it certainly is good news. the last year republicans have said this president hasn't had unemployment under 8% most recently for 43 months. now they can't say that anymore and particularly because this president was reeling a little bit after the first debate, this gives him something to buck him up and he can't say the economy is good, but it does add some strength to the argument that it's getting better. >> also this weekend you have governors from both sides of the aisle including a friend of yours and mine martin o'malley. >> we have martin o'malley and representative senator kelly ahod from new hampshire. >> chris wallace, host of fox news sunday airing at 9 a.m. see you this sunday. >>> coming up next yahoo's new ceo sparks debate among working moms days after giving birth to her first child, the details when we come back. i'm barack obama, and i apapproe this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop condi

. remember, this is the end of the bush administration, early obama administration, the economy was bleeding jobs. 800,000 jobs a month at one point. spurt a growth, back down again. this is what the president says, no, it's not as robust as i would like, but look at this. look at this. since 2010 the economy has been adding jobs including 114,000 in september. that's what the president would say. governor romney says that's not enough. and with less regulation, lower taxes, other pro-business incentives you could create more. last month, health care jobs up, transportation jobs up. this one, wolf, in a report largely encouraging for the president, this is a bit discouraging, manufacturing jobs are down. if you look at the history of manufacturing in the obama presidency, again, you have the huge drop early on and a bit of a recovery since. but manufacturing jobs are still down from the beginning of the obama presidency. let me walk back over to this map for a second. that does matter in places like, the battleground states as well as anyone, ohio's a battleground, iowa's a battleground, in
